Another progressive jackpot winner in January! It's going to be a good year for online casino

Published by Thisbe Savva, 2018-02-06

Well 2018, you have already blown us away, and we are currently only on the second month in. Jackpot winners seem to be popping up from all over, just a week ago there was a very lucky winner of £2.6 million, and now this week a progressive jackpot of £1.9 million just dropped! What is going on 2018, is this some sort of sign that it is going to be a fantastic year because it sure as heck looks like it.

Two jackpots in one month is absolutely incredible!

This specific jackpot win took place on one of our favourite and most popular mobile and desktop online casino here in the UK, if you are not already a member then it is definitely about time you got on that. Thanks to LeoVegas online casino, a brand new millionaire has been made!

Norwegian player bags just under £2 million

The player who won the pot prize of almost £2 million comes from Norway, and they were using the LeoVegas mobile site which actually makes us wonder if when they had hit the jackpot, where were they and what were they doing? Can you imagine if you were casually sitting on the tube having a few spins and then all of a sudden you see ‘Jackpot’ flashing upon your screen. It could be a little nerve wracking actually being on the tube and winning because if someone had a little sneak peek you never know if you could be in danger.

The LeoVegas mobile site is one of the best mobile casinos out there, so it’s not really a surprise that this Norwegian player had decided to use it. But that is exactly what luck is like, it can come out of nowhere and happen at absolutely any point in time! We can’t tell lady luck when we want a few more pounds in our bank accounts, she decides when that will happen!

It was Joker Millions that paid up

Yggdrasil Gaming’s last Jackpot drop was in November where their equally popular online casino jackpots Empire Fortune! But this January it seems as though it was time for Joker Millions to shine and finally let go of that pot of money. It leads us up to that ongoing question of what would you do with all of that money? It might be nice to give some of it to charities, family members and perhaps those overpriced shoes that you have been ogling, there are no limits to how far you can dream, but the most important thing is to make sure you sure your head with what you spend.

2 million is of course an enormous amount of cash to have in your bank account, but you need to have your head firmly screwed on because although it may seem like a never ending amount, it can be. The CEO of Yggdrasil Gaming, Fredrik Elmqvist said a few words about this spectacular win:

“Yggdrasil consistently delivers some of the industry’s biggest jackpots, and all operators understand the value of offering players the chance to win these life-changing prizes. What sets our progressive jackpot slots apart from the competition is the engaging base game, which means that even those who don’t walk away with a prize are still rewarded with an enjoyable experience.”

And Karolina Pelc, the LeoVegas Casino Director also said a few words about having a brand new jackpot winner on their mobile site:

“Nothing makes us happier than seeing our players hit big jackpots, and we are thrilled to be able to deliver another multi-million-euro prize alongside Yggdrasil. Yggdrasil slots are always favourites among our customers, and we have found progressive slots titles including Joker Millions have played an important role in enabling us to deliver a world-class casino offering.”
